Antonio Conte is expected to be sacked as Chelsea boss with former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri to become the new boss at Stamford Bridge.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek has echoed that he is ready for first team football at Chelsea and won’t settle for less when he returns to the club.

The 22-year-old enjoyed a successful spell on loan with Crystal Palace which earned him a World Cup spot, and believes he’s ready to make the step-up.

“I want to play,” said Loftus-Cheek. “That’s the key for me next season regarding where I end up. I want to play. I want to play as much as I can.

“And even this past season just gone I didn’t play as much as I would have liked to because of injuries. So I still feel I need a proper season of playing, wherever it is.

“I’m confident in my ability that I can do well wherever it is. But I’m just not thinking about whether I’m going to play at Chelsea right now. I’m focused on the tournament.”
